Athens, GA (Sports Network) - Aaron Murray threw for 384 yards and four touchdowns and seventh-ranked Georgia overcame a slow start to cruise to a 37- 10 victory over Ole Miss at Sanford Stadium.
Murray completed 21-of-28 passes in bringing the Bulldogs back from an early 10-0 deficit, while Todd Gurley rushed for 117 yards on 18 carries to help Georgia (8-1, 6-1 SEC) move one step closer to sewing up a berth in the SEC Championship Game.
The Bulldogs need only to win at Auburn, which is currently 0-6 in conference play, next Saturday to capture the SEC East.
Bo Wallace threw for 187 yards with one touchdown and an interception on 16-of-25 passing for a Mississippi (5-4, 2-3 SEC) squad that came to Athens off back-to-back wins over Auburn and Arkansas that snapped a 16-game SEC losing streak.
The Rebels were no match for the reigning SEC East champions, however, with Georgia outgaining Ole Miss by a 533-234 margin in total yards for the game.
